Not-so-sweet Sixteen

Hey i just noticed, this is also my 100th post!
so cool......my 100th post just happens to be my birthday post.......
haha
ok, happy birthday to me!!
so i'm 16 today, though it feels no different from yesterday, it's just a day to commemorate the 16 years i've survived in this world.......

so yesterday, to cheer myself up, i made a list.
16 things that I've achieved in the past year......


1. I jumped my best high-jump yet.
2. I let go of a cat
3. I got another cat
4. I started a blog
5. I studied for and wrote 10th grade board exams
6. I made a new friend
7. I got all-time disappointing low board marks
8. I saw snow for the first time and had a mega snow fight
9. I trekked about 32 km in one week
10. I learnt to live with silence
11. I got my eyebrows done
12. I learnt to accept myself as I am and not care about what other people think.....well, mostly.
13. I learnt the useful art of stress relief.
14. I got yet another cat, that makes two.......
15. I learnt to tolerate different kinds of people
16. I found an aim in my previously aimless life....

All that is just one year! man, i guess i'm an overachiever.......
hm, what can i say, i haven't yet achieved the art of modesty!

My mom was thingking of giving me 16 gifts, but the idea didn't materialise, she didn't have time to go buy stuff.
ah, well, tomoro morning is mega-shopping day.yippee! i will buy more books, and maybe a pair of jeans if i find them.....
hmm.....
so.
My 16th birthday has offered me no special insights, nothing yet, but hey, it's only 9 in the morn and the day is not over......
to date, I have 12 scraps, 4 facebook posts, 7 messages, and a lot of phone calls including 3 internationals.
see, this is what makes me feel all good and warm inside......
being remembered by people i love.
sigh.......
anyway, it's gonna be a great day, i'm sure....
after all, you turn 16 only once!
